I'm off to Athens for Olympiakos-Arsenal, but the other week I visited Leipzig to meet Emil Forsberg for this interview. His RB Leipzig side face Spurs later; a lot of people don't like them, but they don't care: https://t.co/IHqbvNrg68
RT @MiguelDelaney: This City story is ultimately about a petro-state taking on European football’s governing body over how the game is run - an absurd sentence, and the state of football in 2020. Its importance and stakes have actually been almost understated so far.
Emil Forsberg has had snowballs & even a bull's head thrown in his vicinity while with RB Leipzig. But the club keeps growing, a triumph of ideas as much as money. Now they may be favourites to beat Spurs & reach the CL quarter-finals. Exclusive interview: https://t.co/IHqbvN9EHy
Nelson on Arteta: "Mikel’s drive is different. I haven’t seen a manager with that much determination to make individuals into better players." Speaks highly of Wenger also, of course, but felt alienated under Nagelsmann at Hoffenheim. #AFC
No two ways about it: Arteta *loves* Nelson. Kept an almost proprietorial eye on him even while at Man City. That and much more discussed in here, as well as the reason you should never give him and Jadon Sancho a football when they're together.
Read this – it's very good and it really, really matters.
Flynn Downes head & shoulders above anyone on the pitch in an intensely frustrating draw at Kingsmeadow. The problem for Ipswich, a massive one, is that going up is the difference between selling him for £12m or £2m. Just one reason why failure to go up this year = disaster #itfc
Emmanuel Adebayor pitches up in ... Paraguay.
